And what to my wondering eyes did appear? It is such a treat when these Yellow Headed Blackbirds arrive. This time they where very obliging about staying in a small group, although one of their smaller cousins a Red Wing Blackbird dropped in for a chat as I was snapping the photo.

This bird with it’s brilliant yellow head, together with its loud, rusty-hinge call, make the Yellow-headed Blackbird a conspicuous presence. It breeds in loose colonies and places its nest over water, attached to cattails and reeds. Taken on our acreage in Sherwood Park, Alberta,Canada
